IAEA Meeting Produced Some Solutions

After a meeting between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Tehran on Wednesday held to resolve differences over the implementation of the two outstanding nuclear transparency measures Iran undertook to carry out under a cooperation agreement signed in late 2013, the ambassador to the IAEA said some solutions have been reached to complete the remaining steps.
"In the meeting, solutions were found for the remaining issues, which we expect to be finalized" in the next round of discussions, IRNA reported Reza Najafi as saying.
"We agreed to examine the solutions in more detail in the next meeting."
The agency claims Iran has failed to adequately address the outstanding issues.  The two remaining issues include alleged high explosives tests and studies that could be relevant for any effort to build nuclear bombs. Iran denies its nuclear program may have any military objectives.  Najafi reiterated Iran has already addressed the former question by offering "managed access" to the alleged site of the tests in western Iran.
"Regarding the alleged high explosives tests in the Marivan region, we offered managed access to the agency but we have not received a response yet," Najafi said.
An IAEA statement on Wednesday's meeting posted on the website of the UN nuclear watchdog also said, "The two sides discussed the continuation of the implementation of (the cooperation agreement). In this context, they had a constructive exchange on the two practical measures under discussion."
